Known as the fashion icon of Bollywood, Sonam Kapoor says many actresses in the industry blame her for starting the trend of always being stylish. The Prem Ratan Dhan Payo star said a “big actress” once told her how she had to shell out a lot of money to pay for her stylist to look good.

“A lot of actresses are abusing me for it. I remember a very big actress telling me ‘Sonam, why did you do this. You know how much money I am paying my stylist right now’. “I was like I don’t pay my stylist, it’s my sister or I just style myself. You just have to be yourself,” she told reporters at Filmfare Glamour and Style Awards cover launch.

Sonam said film stars have to be careful while setting a trend as they are influential. “As movie stars we have such a huge say in how the market is going to be like. Whether it’s the movies, or cricket, we all started dressing up in a certain way and started wearing make-up. We unfortunately or fortunately set trends so we have to be very careful in what we do and what we say,” she said.

Sonam, however, feels she should be called “stylish” rather than a “fashionista”. “Being fashionable and being stylish are two different things. Style is able to carry whatever you are... I hate it when people call me fashionista, I’d rather have people call me stylish.”
